Type speciesLentimurispora urniformis N.G. Liu, McKenzie & K.D. Hyde.

Notes – Liu et al. (2018c) introduced the monotypic genus Lentimurispora which is characterized by micronematous conidiophores, monoblastic conidiogenous cells, and muriform, lenticular conidia with dark brown central cells and paler peripheral cells. Lentimurispora resembles Hermatomyces in having lenticular, muriform conidia, with subhyaline to pale brown peripheral cells and dark brown central cells (Ellis 1971, Tibpromma et al. 2016a). However, Lentimurispora has micronematous conidiophores and hyaline, wedge-shaped conidiogenous cells, while Hermatomyces has short, pale brown conidiophores and cylindrical conidiogenous cells (Ellis 1971, Liu et al. 2018c).
